Hong Kong’s Shi Fu Miz Festival arts and music festival returns this year, having expanded to a two-day camping event on the shores Sai Yuen. A mix of electronic and funk artists will be performing at an 11-acre site on Cheung Chau island from October 27-28. HKFP is a media sponsor.

This year’s line-up boasts British DJs Ben UFO,  Dan Shake and Norwegian electronic master Skatebård, alongside an array of disk-turners and live acts including American funk and soul artist Glenn Underground, Japanese DJ and producer Midori Aoyama,  Le Camion Bazar, and many more. There will also be a silent disco.

Shi Fu Miz co-founder Florian told HKFP: “We wanted to celebrate art and music and bring something different to Hong Kong, similar to what people can see in Europe… it will be a special moment to escape the madness of the city and to relax with your friends in a natural and idyllic spot.”

The festival is set to showcase a range of activities including ecology talks, street art displays and yoga workshops, incorporating mindfulness, meditation and rhythmic yoga. And for those who want to relax, there will also be a farm and chill area.

“We are influenced by Rainbow Disco Club, sharing similar music vibes, and are greatly inspired by Wonderfruit in Thailand. That festival is maybe the most creative for art, decoration, lighting, mapping and stages I’ve seen in Asia,” Florian said.

Florian said that – alongside Sonar, Clockenflap and Altn8, the festival scene is expanding in Hong Kong. Their focus, however, is on creating a “green” festival where partygoers are conscious of the environment: “Hong Kong is a special place with high rents price and a lack of space… so it’s not easy to find the right venue, with the right people – but we are really happy to be working with Sai Yuen Farm on Cheung Chau – they are supporting us so much on the production of the event.”
